The kiddo was plenty mad at me when, at 4:00 a.m., I dosed him with cough medicine and asked him to get out of bed to go potty before going back to sleep. "Why are you ruining my life? Don't you love me?" he wailed. He's six-and-a-half going on thirteen. (In all fairness, though, I'm not very delightful when awakened in the middle of the night, either!) But after having listened to him cough for most of the night, I finally decided that intervention was necessary...and now he's sleeping peacefully, so we both win.

Maybe I should try for a bit more shut-eye before our day officially starts. I'm walking with the kiddo's class on a little field trip tomorrow. I may even break my eighteen-day caffeine-free streak. Hmm... ;-)
